You know I really don't know jack about this actor, but damn was he good in Resevoir Dogs. He didn't have much of a part, but like alot of character actors he doesn't need much dialogue.

Kind of like Francis Coppola said about the Godfather....we don't have time to come up with everything that makes you believe the Irish cop character. To do it like the book would take hours of back story...but having Sterling Hayden play the part....BAM you got it all with a few sentences.

This is how I feel about this character. That and the fact that he is technical advisor for the movie HEAT. Is it just me or does John Voight play it like Ed would have? So similar.

Most of his work is found as him being a author. He does strike me as someone that truly knows the crime life. After reading about him, that is because he was a criminal himself.

It is all about the essence.
